Experiencing Interruptions?


11% of the world's population, or 844 million people, do not have access to drinking water compared to 19% in 2000.
11% of the world's population, or 844 million people, do not have access to safe drinking water in 2015 according to the 2017 Progress Report on Sanitation and Water Supply World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF. Real progress has been made in recent decades: compared to 2000, the number of people with access to safe water has increased from 5 to 6.5 billion. Drinking water, along with food and housing, is an essential pillar of quality of life. First, for hygiene reasons: dirty water is one of the major vectors of the most deadly diseases on the planet, including diarrhea.

Then, because we can not live without drinking water: those who do not have access on site are forced to devote a large part of their time and energy to stocking up, moving to random sources and whose quality is poorly controlled. WHO considers that access to water is necessary if it is necessary to travel less than thirty minutes round trip, which is already considerable.

In Burundi, several organizations are working in this field and, even if the step is considerable, we still have some way to go.
